The house is signed, sealed…and almost delivered. The property my grandparents bought is about to be unloaded, and not a moment too soon: to my surprise, I’ve gotten a cash offer for $250,000 with just a walk-through required rather than a full inspection or an … Continue readingThe Clock is Ticking
Today, February 13, 2024, is my thirtieth birthday, a milestone, and not one I’m altogether pleased about; it’s not like I have to pass into the grim routine of middle age and fade into the shadow world like the elves of Middle-Earth, but there is … Continue readingO Brave New Decade: Turning Thirty
